Wow! Another great show with excellent sound from Spring of 1971.
Everything well played 1st set ends at Casey Jones.
Sing Me Back-getting tighter ever time.
the Dead would have played all night if the powers that be had just relaxed up on the rules and regulations.

Subject: My First Dead Show
This was my first Dead show...i was 13. I remember a lot of the details vividly. Jerry played steel with the NRPS and when their set ended, half of the crowd left, thinking they'd seen the Dead because Jerry was out there. Brilliant. The band came out and played EVERYTHING...until the house lights got turned on. They just kept playing...until the power was cut. Garcia was PISSED. He said that they'd never play Bangor again and...guess what?...they didn't. Portland, Lewsiton, Orono, Oxford, Augusta...never in Bangor again. This was a really great show. Glad that I'm just old enough to have gotten to see Pigen a few times. :-) -jg

...I was there at my only Grateful Dead show while in college at Colby in Waterville. Remember being there and that is all. Hey, I'm still alive and now a 'wharf rat' but definitely not then.

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" April 22, 1971 at the Bangor Municipal Auditorium, Bangor, Maine, U.S.A.


Super 71' Soundboard!!! Thanks Scotty, Beam me up!

Thirty eight years ago today the GRATEFUL DEAD were in Bangor Maine performing at the Municipal Auditorium, where were you? I couldn't be there in 71, but I made it today...where were you?

Solid, strong, "in the pocket" performance of all our favorite songs from April 71'.

A "Must Have Show" from 71'.

Great 71' "Sound". Pigpen performs a few of our favorite songs, Hard To Handle, Good Lovin' and Next Time You See Me.

The "Sound" of the GRATEFUL DEAD changed after 71.

Garcia performs "Sing Me Back Home" written by Merle Haggard, one of the worlds greatest songwriters to ever live.

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1971 GRATEFUL DEAD collection. Scott Clugston did it again, another "Masterpiece".

5 Stars for the mix, recording, performance and transfer.

Subject: Sounds like it was a fun time
I used to have this tape years ago but have since lost it so its great to be able to get it again. I always liked this show alot, its not on many ppl's lists but its a fun show with some funny banter by the boys. They seem to be in a great mood and the music is tight as is most of the spring 71 tour. Nice sbd quality as well. Would love to see those photos Sammo! Recommended!

Subject: Not a bad concert at all.
A little shorter because of the threat of having the power cut off around midnight, but otherwise quite enjoyable. I got to sit on the stage right in front of Uncle Jerry for most of the show. Got lots of photos including Jerry with NRPS. This was just a few days before the Fillmore (Ladies & Gentlemen).
